Biography Ryuki Ingen
Ingen Ryuki (in Chinese, Yinyuan Longqi) was a Chinese Buddhist monk who entered the Zen (Chan) center at Mount Obaku (Huangbo) in 1620 and traveled in 1654 to Japan, where he won the respect of both the Tokugawa shogunate and the imperial court. The shogunate granted him land at Uji near Kyoto, where he built Manpukuji Temple in 1661 and established the Japanese branch of the Obaku sect.
